So sprites that appear outside of battle such as the lapras sprite when you surf in gen 1.

gen 3 jigglypuff is so cute
Do spinoff games count?
yeah, 'cause the mystery dungeon series has a lot of overworld sprites
HGSS has overworld sprites for all 493 Gen 1-4 pokemon that were available at the time.
Yeah, including spin-offs but but my main thought was on the main series so to me it doesn't matter if they're left out to much so it's really up to the person who answers to choose if they want to include spin-offs or not.
Every Pokémon has a model in Super Mystery Dungeon except for Volcanion and Pokémon/forms introduced in Alola. There are some Alola Pokémon with overworld sprites in SM. So really, every Pokémon except Volcanion and most Alola Pokémon has an overworld sprite.
mimikyu's overworld sprite looks awsome.
Does the palm tree on exegutor island count, as it turned out to be exegutor? (BTW, I have theory that since that used to be a trial site, mabye that palm tree was really totem exegutor partially buried after losing his totem aura over time)
I would say it would count although since the sprite was only a palm and not the whole Pokemon, I could understand if it was forgotten.
In Gen 1, Snorlax, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, and Mewtwo have overworld sprites. (However, I'm pretty sure that they're the same sprites that are used for the party.
In Yellow, Pikachu has an overworld sprite.
In Gen 2, Gyarados, Lapras, Snorlax, Ho-oh, and Lugia have overworld sprites.
In FR/LG, Snorlax, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Lugia, Ho-oh, and Deoxys have overworld sprites.
In R/S/E, Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Latios, Latias have overworld sprites. The Regis also have overworld sprites, but they don't seem to resemble the actual Pokemon that much. All three are basically just statues colored in a similar color as each Regi.
In Emerald, Mew, Deoxys, Lugia, and Ho-oh have overworld sprites.
In Gen 4, all Pokemon from Gens 1, 2, 3, and 4 should have overworld sprites.
I'm not going use this as an answer (Unless you want me to), because it is not complete.
In B/W, Victini, Reshiram, Zekrom, Cobalion, Virizion, Terrakion, Kyurem, Landorus, Darmanitan, Musharna, and Volcarona have overworld sprites.
In B2/W2, Minccino, Liepard, Mandibuzz, Braviary, Volcarona, Crustle, both genders of Jellicent, shiny Haxorus, Virizion, Cobalion, Terrakion, Zekrom, Reshiram, Kyurem, Latios, Latias, Uxie, Azelf, Mesprit, Regirock, Registeel, Regice, Regigigas, Heatran, and Cresselia have overworld sprites.
In X and Y, Gogoat, Skiddo, Zygarde, Mewtwo, Lapras, and Snorlax have overworld sprites.
In ORAS, Sharpedo, Wailmer, Kyogre, Deoxys, Rayquaza, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latios, Latias, Kecleon, Wingull, Spiritomb's base thing, and Spinda have overworld sprites.
In Sun and Moon, Solgaleo, Lunala, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Mudsdale, Tauros, Stoutland, Sharpedo, Lapras, Machamp, Pelipper, Rockruff, Miltank, Alolan Grimer, Probopass, Murkrow, Poliwhirl, Corsola, Pyukumuku, Starmie, Snubbull, Magmar, Slowpoke, Magnemite, and Mimikyu have overworld sprites.
I'm not adding this as an answer, (Unless you would like me to.) as this is incomplete.
I'll gradually add to this as I remember/see more of the overworld sprites. It may eventually end up as an answer.
holy mew, you say this is incomplete? HF taco, this deserves to be an answer.
It is incomplete. I mentioned very few of the Pokemon that aren't Pokemon that you interact with and battle.
Probopass has an overworld sprite in S/M as well, sep
Oh, right, it did.
Gen 7 overworld definitely had Pikachu, both Meowth, Pyukumuku, and Stufful as well. If you're okay with it, Hellfire, I can answer this now and build off of it.
I was actually working on an answer just now. It should be up within an hour at the very latest.

Best answer

I think I may possibly have a complete answer.

In Gen 1, Pikachu, Snorlax, Clefairy, Sandshrew (I think), Bulbasaur, Oddish, Jigglypuff, Chansey, and the generic "animal" sprites (Such as the sprite that is just a generic bird) all had overworld sprites.

In Gen 2, Snorlax, Lapras, Pikachu, Slowpoke, Clefairy, Gyarados, and the generic "animal" sprites all had overworld sprites.

In R/S/E, Lugia, Ho-oh, Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, Latios, Latias, Vigoroth, Dusclops, Azurill, Marill, Pikachu, Kecleon, Kirlia, Wingull, Poochyena, Skitty, the Regis, Machoke, Zigzagoon, and Sudowoodo had overworld sprites.

In FR/LG, Snorlax, Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres, Deoxys (Normal, Speed, and Defense.), Spearow, Omanyte, Kangaskhan, Psyduck, both genders of Nidoran, Nidorino, Meowth, Seel, Cubone, Machamp, Lapras, Fearow, Doduo, Wigglytuff, Machop, Jigglypuff, Pidgey, Slowpoke, Slowbro, Voltorb, Mewtwo, Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi, Clefairy, Pikachu, Chansey, Pidgeot, Kabuto, Mew, and Poliwrath had overworld sprites.

In Gen 4, all Pokemon that existed in and before Gen 4 had overworld sprites. I'm not quite sure about all of those Pokemon have shiny overworld sprites, but I'm going to assume that they do.

In Gen 5, Pikachu, Tornadus, Thundurus, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Landorus, Kyurem, Keldeo (Both forms), Meloetta (Both forms), Volcarona, Victini, Munna, Musharna, Patrat, Petilil, Minccino, Krokorok, Zorua, Zekrom, Reshiram, all forms of Deerling, Watchog, Lillipup, Herdier, Liepard, Pansage, Pansear, Panpour, Audino, Tympole, Scraggy, Gothorita, Ducklett, Galvantula, Axew, Cubchoo, Stunfisk, Mienfoo, Haxorus (Both normal and shiny.), both genders of Jellicent, Roggenrola, Crustle, Cresselia, Mandibuzz, Heatran, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Regigigas, Mareep, Darmanitan's Zen Mode, White Kyurem, Black Kyurem, and Cinccino had overworld sprites. Also, according to this and this, all, or at least most, Pokemon had overworld sprites. I don't remember all of them being used in game, but the developers may have made sprites for each of the existing Pokemon at the time.

Gen 6: Sharpedo, Wailmer, Kyogre, Groudon, Deoxys, Rayquaza, Regirock, Regice, Registeel, Latios, Latias, Kecleon, Wingull, Spiritomb's base thing, Gogoat, Skiddo, Zygarde, Mewtwo, Lapras, Snorlax, Rhyhorn, Mamoswine, Marill, Xerneas, Yveltal, and Machoke all have overworld models. Also, Luvdisc appears underwater in ORAS when using Dive.

Gen 7: Corsola, Cosmog, Cosmoem, Delibird, Drifloon, Alolan Grimer, Hypno, Litten, Machamp, Magmar, Magnemite, Alolan Marowak, Meowth, Alolan Meowth, Miltank, Mimikyu, Mudsdale, Murkrow, Oranguru, Pelipper, Pikachu, Poliwhirl, Popplio, Probopass, Pyukumuku, Rockruff, Rowlet, Slowpoke, Snubbull, Spearow, Spinda, Starmie, Stufful, Sudowoodo, Tapu Koko, Tauros, Wimpod, Yungoos, Charizard, Lapras, Sharpedo, Machamp, Stoutland, Solgaleo, Lunala, Alolan Vulpix, Alolan Dugtrio, Alolan Exeggutor, Bellossom, Gastrodon, Frillish, Dartrix, Decidueye, Torracat, Incineroar, Brionne, Primarina, Charjabug, Crabrawler, Dewpider, Fomantis, Bewear, Comfey, Sandygast, Togedemaru, Buzzwole, Pheromosa, Xurkitree, Celesteela, Kartana, Guzzlord, Necrozma, Poiple, Mantine, and Nihilego all have overworld models.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is incomplete, but this is all that I could find.

Bonus: I also found this amazing picture of Zygarde.

zygarde became toothpaste
10/10 would brush
It doesn't matter too much if there's one or two missing considering you would have got the majority of them. Not to mention the fact you obviously did a lot of research.  Also thanks for the Zygarde pic . :)
You are very welcome. Answering this question made me appreciate models more. I now aspire to be a model when I'm older.
incredible. is HF taco a reincarnation of mega septile? people keep calling him sep.
That's because I am Sep.
